Village Shop Working Group

Chair: Beverley Marshall
Members: Rebecca Coast-Smith, Tracey Watts, Janet Speake, Kirsty Murby, Eleanor Murby, John Weil

Questionnaire responses summary

Village Shop
- There is a sizeable demand for a Village shop, but less interest in a Village vending machine
- There is also an apparent willingness to give time to stock/help in a shop, less so for a vending machine
- However, nearly 70% of respondents travel some distance (beyond Hatton) for their weekly shop and a further 14% depend upon home delivery, i.e. they do NOT use the local shops
- This brings into question the viability of a Village shop

Post Office
- There is little demand for an outreach Post Office
